Hi all. Although I’m new to the forums, I’ve been using the very helpful video tutorials here to guide me through my knitting projects. Hope someone can help me with a couple of questions on a vintage knitting pattern.
I want to knit a v-neck pullover for my husband, however am a bit confused with selecting the correct yarn and needle sizes.
The pattern states that worsted 4 ply yarn is required. Initially I thought that a 4 ply yarn would suffice. However I’m doubtful about this because of the size of needles required, 8 and 10. Presuming these are sizes in 5mm and 6mm converted in metric (is this right? - I live in the UK), the needles seems a little large for 4 ply yarn. Going back to the pattern, the term ‘worsted’ yarn is used. Should I be selecting worsted yarn instead? Confused!!
Thanks for your help!
